Dendrobium anosmum, an unscented dendrobium, locally known as Sanggumay, is native to the Philippines, Borneo, New Guinea, Thailand and Sri Lanka. The genus Dendrobium contains approximately 1,200 species making it one of the largest genera in the orchid family. Dendrobiums are adapted to monsoon climates and long dry periods stimulate flower production. This species is popular for lei production because it is relatively long-lasting with flowers staying fresh for up to 4 days and does not crush easily.
Spotted the blooms at my friend's grandmother's garden when we visited her recently.

Really pretty shots!
Gorgeous orchid! I love the colour.
Lovely color and the petals looks like they have a frosted or lacy edge.
Luna, this is sanggumay, very much sweet scented. Haven't you smelled it when getting the shots. I guess the D anosmum, without much scent is the paler violet and smaller flowers!
A soft and pretty jacaranda blue.
@ Andrea, you're right, this is sanggumay...but i didn't notice the scent. well, i have a defective nose.:p
Pretty shots! Like your header too :)
